A Hadits from Mu'adz ibn Jabal (r.a.)

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

The Prophet (s.a.w.) said, “Ya Mu’adz.”

And Mu’adz (r.a.) said, “Yes, O my Prophet.”

They rode on and the Prophet (s.a.w.) said, “Ya Mu’adz.”

“Yes, my Prophet.”

Again the Prophet (s.a.w.) did not say anything, indicating that what he was about to say was extremely important.  Again the Prophet (s.a.w.) said, “Ya Mu’adz.”

And again Mu’adz (r.a.) said, “Yes, yes, my Prophet, at your service.”

The Prophet (s.a.w.) said, “Know this: For anyone who says ‘Laa ilaha illa Allah, Muhammad ar-Rasulullah’, there will be no Punishment, and all will be Forgiven.”

Mu’adz (r.a.) quite excitedly said, “Is this something I can tell everyone?”

The Prophet (s.a.w.) said, “No, do not tell it, because they will ease off on their work, and they will ease off on their prayers.”

Mu’adz (r.a.) remained silent until, on his deathbed, he repeated what he had heard.  Then it became a hadits, something actually heard from the mouth of the Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.).
